Victim-centered investigations are based on the premise of believing the accuser’s story before the gathering of evidence occurs and to always believe the accuser. Victim-centered investigations emphasize the collection of corroborative evidence supporting the accuser and discourage the collection of exculpatory evidence. Victim-centered investigations represent a departure from ethical standards of investigative impartiality, neutrality, and objectivity, thus removing the presumption of innocence from the accused. It is “an attempt to railroad accused [college] students while looking impartial.”
